Hi, my MacBook told me that I should come on here to try and get hibernation fixed. It threatened to end the world if we can't get hibernate working. Help?

do you have a swap partition?

do you have a swap partition?
Yes, 1.5 times my RAM; per order.

do you have any details about what is happening? does it successfully shutdown? any error messages?

The almighty MacBook exists X as to pretend to hibernate, then abruptly wakes up returning to X without any errors or warnings. I fear it is most displeased.

It sounds like it. Are you Hibernating, or suspending?

are there any messages in the output of dmesg?

I'm trying to hibernate. Suspension doesn't work either. I haven't changed any settings, so this is all out of the box - which evidently has never worked for me before. There is also nothing in dmesg pertaining hibernation, just a bunch of messages about applesmc waiting for a status that failed. No ill effects caused by that module though.

I do believe I tried to install suspend2 through aptitude, however.

Sorry, I don't know what to tell you. I was under the impression that suspend worked on your model (for the most part). I would guess that the lack of suspend is linked to the hibernation problem though.

Oh, the humanity! :(

I have an older MBP, the core 2 duo 2.33

I'm managing to suspend, but I'm having the exact same problem to hibernate... Can it b related to the fact that I have swap file instead of a swap partition?

I don't think it is, I have a swap partition; and the problem persists.

Try doing as shown in MISC
https://help.ubuntu.com/community/MacBook

Worked for me, I had the same problem as you, and doing that enabled hibernation for me.

i was under the impression that hibernate would not work with a swapfile, but I may be wrong.

Same problem with MacBook 2,1... I use Zenwalk so for me it's standby vs. hibernate. Standby works, hibernate does not.

My hibernate script actually runs standby if hibernate fails. As this was the case I never really saw the hibernate errors, I just assumed it was working. One thing that tipped me off was the first time I ran the hibernate script from the terminal vs. a gui option. It does sound like you've seen some error output, but I wonder if you could get more by opening a terminal and running whatever your hibernate binary is. For me it's:
sudo /usr/sbin/hibernate

When I ran that I finally saw all of it's vomit and realized that it wasn't working as I thought. I haven't tried to fix it... I just settled for standby. I'm interested in seeing if there's a resolution, though!
